Charming hotel

Posted Oct 4, 2016
Pros: Small, cozy and very pretty
Cons: Better service, more avialabitity in the front desk, restricted hours of service, no cleaning service or breakfast sundays.
Location: Wonderful location, two blocks from the beach.
Pretty and cozy hotel. Good location, wonderful vegetation, service could be better (front service restricted, not as nice), not all rooms are as good.

Pros: persönliche Kontaktaufnahme vor der Reise gut durchdacht, viele Kleinigkeiten für einen perfekten Urlaub mitten in einem schönen Garten, sehr ruhig
Cons: alles war perfekt, weiter so
Location: das Hotel ist hinter den großen Hotels,3 Min. Fußweg zum Strand mit vielen Sportangeboten Lokale und Einkaufscenter in der Nähe, 15 Min. Fußweg
Das Boardwalk Hotel hat eine tolle Home page ( unbedingt lesen) und wir haben alles so erlebt wie beschrieben, außerdem hatten wir bereits vor unserer Abreise e-mail Kontakt und so viele Infos erhalten. Dieses Hotel ist die wohl beste Alternative zu den großen Hotels. Wir hatten eine "Casita"(Bungalow) mit 2 Schlafzimmern, jedes mit eigenem Bad und einen großen Wohn-Essbereich mit einer gut ausgestatteten Küche, umgeben von Palmen und Blumen, sehr ruhig. Das Personal ist sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit. Es gibt Klappliegestühle und eine Kühlbox für unterwegs,man sollte unbedingt ein Mietauto nehmen, um die kleinen Strände zu erreichen, wo das Baden und Schnorcheln wirklich schön ist, denn der Strand vor dem Hotel ist gut besucht und laut, da viele Wassersportmöglichkeiten angeboten werden. Es gibt einen riesigen Supermarkt( Super food) für die Lebensmitteleinkäufe (einige Minuten Autofahrt) und Shoppingcenter in der Nähe. Das Boardwalk Hotel ist eine Oase zum Wohlfühlen und Entspannen.

Pros: Everything.
Cons: My only suggestion would be to have a few bikes available to guest who want to explore the local area.
Location: The location is the last hotel on the strip, closest to the California Lighthouse. Walking distance (15 min) to the Palm Plaza Mal.
I can't say enough good things about the Boardwalk. We had the best experience with not a single complaint. Very personal feel, clean, well maintained, and very attentive of our needs. Everything we read about the property amenities and accommodations was on point. I recommend this hotel to anyone who enjoys a quiet, homelike kind of resort.

I wouldn't stay here

Posted Apr 5, 2016
Cons: Make the outside of the hotel more appealing, updated and clean.
Location: Not much to do around the hotel, more like a 10 minute walk to the beach.
One room casita is not near big enough for two people; small porch, no patio; area around the hotel isn't appealing; pool wasn't relaxing or clean, although the garden surrounding it was nice; whirlpool attached to pool wasn't working; bathroom very small and no hot water.

Charmantes kleines Hotel in der Nähe des Strandes

Posted Aug 17, 2015 on Hotels
Schönes kleines Hotel dass einen guten Kontrast zu den Bettenburgen in der Umgebung bietet: + Große Zimmer mit Küche + Eigener kleiner Pool und Hängematten vor dem Haus + Gute Lage für Kitesurfer und Sonnenanbieter (Sonnenliegen können umsonst geliehen werden. Es gibt auch Liegen am Strand die umsonst genutzt werden können) - Mietwagen zwingend nötig wenn man nicht nur am Strand liegen will

Amazing casita in Aruba! Cannot wait to go back to "one happy island" and yes, will be staying at the Boardwalk again. Excellent experience, start to finish!

Hotel from a dream

Posted May 27, 2015
From the start of the stay until the end this was by far one of the coziest, most romantic, island/beach perfect hotel I've ever stayed at. Everything about the hotel makes you feel happy and like you're actually on a secluded island getaway. The most amazing thing about this hotel was that it didn't feel like it was on Palm Beach with all the high rises, it just felt like you were in your own little corner of Aruba. The staff is super friendly and always happy. The breakfasts were just the right amount of food to prep for a day at the beach or scuba diving. Couldn't be more happy with our experience. Definitely the place to stay if you are looking for a romantic getaway.

Beautiful hidden spot!! Well maintained, awesome staff and we loved the cat that would visit and say hi!!! They provide anything and everything you possibly need! Perfect location, right behind The Ritz and Marriot (5 min walk). Very helpful staff. Highly recommend staying here.

Very Disappointed

Posted Nov 18, 2014 on Orbitz
Booked this hotel based on reviews about the beautiful private casitas and patios. Despite having a reservation when numerous casitas were still available we were put in one right next to the office with absolutely no privacy. The king bed turned out to be 2 full size beds jammed up into the wall so that one person couldn't get out. Not a single clock around. Uncomfortable living room furniture. No tv in the bedroom. No pot holders or implements for the barbecue (nor charcoal). Children screaming each day at the pool for 2 hours - right when it was time to come back from the beach and try to relax before dinner. Dinner recommendations were limited to 1-2 restaurants and no familiarity with other restaurants and locations. Unbelievably, knowing our disappointment with room location, upon check out they tried to convince me to come back when they add more rooms. The pluses: Very clean, friendly.
